This web page was created as a convenience for our residents and businesses to provide details of the proposed changes for 2015 and 2016 the City Council will be considering at the June 10, 2014, and June 17, 2014, regular City Council meetings.

A copy of the rate review presentation from the informational meeting is provided as well as slides showing what the rate changes mean to a typical residential household.  The additional annual cost for an average residential household is projected to be $24.88 in 2015 and $20.84 in 2016.  These funds will be used to provide the reliable and continuous service our citizens expect and deserve.

Water conservation tools are available at no charge to our residents to assist them in reducing their monthly water usage and thus reducing their utility bills as well.  For more information related to the City of Sioux Falls water conservation options, please go to http://www.siouxfalls.org/public-works/water-conservation.
